Bob Lyons: Twisted agenda? |

Bob Lyons: Twisted agenda?

For a teacher, you seem oblivious to the facts and the pertinent details of a tragedy that you pompous liberals on the left seem obsessed with blaming on right-leaning conservatives. Your departure from the truth came early in your column: In your second sentence you stated that the shooter was “inspired by political outrage and dissent.”

Virtually all evidence in the actual case indicates the shooter’s beliefs were apolitical, and that, according to his friends he was a leftist liberal who only wanted to create chaos. He held a personal grudge against the victim as well as campus police. He never watched Fox News or listened to Rush, Beck nor the Dems’ biggest bogey man, Sarah Palin.

The criminal in this case suffers from severe mental illness and acted on his sick and despicable impulses by destroying the lives of innocent people. It would take a someone with a very vindictive mindset and a twisted personal agenda to suggest otherwise.
